Pretty Food: Lemon Blackberry Scones {PALEO}

It’s no secret that I like pretty food.  I go to extra measures to make sure I have a pretty plate in front of me most of the time.  Call me crazy, but I think food just tastes better when it looks good!  Anyway, I was at the store the store the other day and saw the most perfect looking blackberries.  I’m usually not the biggest fan of blackberries, but these guys were on sale and they looked delicious; so I grabbed some.  I made Lemon Blackberry Scones that the whole family enjoyed.  And I know that I say “the whole family enjoyed” a lot, but, I promise, I’m telling you the truth.  The recipe is basically half of my Cranberry Orange Muffin but the ingredients are slightly different and obviously, these aren’t muffins.  Here they are, Lemon Blackberry Scones {PALEO}.Paleo scones with lemons and blackberries.
